How the Moth Orchid can make you stop and appreciate the simple beauty of nature!
So sometimes you just see perfection...and it makes you smile! It is amazing what nature can create and quite simply...it is just awesome!
I was lucky to receive this Moth Orchid (PHALAENOPSIS) from my dad for Christmas a few years ago and it is just beautiful!
Just walking past this gorgeous plant, can give you goose bumps!
How detailed these flowers are up close and how, from a distance, this plant truly makes an impact!...the colours, it's delicate style and ....well....it is just plain pretty!!
I can stand at look at these beautiful flowers and just know that what ever happens in the world, there is still beauty.
Now, not to sound too mushy...but sometimes it is nice to just take a moment and appreciate those little things. The things that are simple, beautiful and made by nature!
The added bonus about Moth Orchids is that they produce flowers for about 3 months...so they are the flower that keeps giving!...so no throwing theses flowers away!
So I had to do a little search (see below) about to find out how to care for Moth Orchids and luckily they are the easiest orchid to grow and are low maintenance.
...now that is the perfect plant!
...Thanks Dad!! x
Update - Now that my dad has passed from a long and painful battle with cancer, these orchids mean even more to me now. They remind me of my dad and what a beautiful way to remember him. They give me a smile not just because of their beauty but because they are a plant that keeps the memory of my dad alive!
